Ghost in the Shell

I saw Ghost in the Shell last night.
The Matrix can suck eggs.

“A ghost-hacked hu­man is a piti­ful thing.”

“A copy is just an iden­ti­cal im­age. There is the pos­si­bil­i­ty that a sin­gle virus could de­stroy an en­tire set of sys­tems and copies do not give rise to va­ri­ety and orig­i­nal­i­ty. Life per­pet­u­ates it­self through di­ver­si­ty and this in­cludes the abil­i­ty to sac­ri­fice it­self when nec­es­sary. Cells re­peat the process of de­gen­er­a­tion and re­gen­er­a­tion un­til one day they die, oblit­er­at­ing an en­tire set of mem­o­ry and in­for­ma­tion, on­ly genes re­main. Why con­tin­u­al­ly re­peat this cy­cle? Simply to sur­vive by avoid­ing the weak­ness­es of an un­chang­ing sys­tem.”

“Overspecialization leads to death.”
